The number of vitamins that were available back in day were few but what vitamin did your mom lay out for you every morning when you were growing up?

Vitamins always have been and always will be a high-profit item. It all started back in 1960 when vitamins were geared for children. The companies that distributed those candy-like chewables for kids were making a mint.

In 1960, Miles Labratory, the giant in the vitamin market, came out with a line of vitamins for kids called Chocks. It was the first chewable vitamin for children.

It was no fluke that years later the giant vitamin-maker teamed up with one of the most popular kids shows at the time. In 1968, Miles teamed up with the crew from Bedrock to market Flinstones vitamins in a variety of colors, shapes, and chewy varieties.

Later it was Bugs Bunny vitamins. So through the years of marketing by the powers-to-be, did you take one of these vitamins as a kid?
